Seller Insight This is the ideal home for everyday life and entertaining alike,” say the current owners of this modern home built in 2007, “with flexible open plan living accommodation and a lovely secluded back garden with shady planted trees and a sunny patio area for al fresco dining. Though the house itself is very sociable, Little Copt enjoys a wonderfully peaceful setting on the edge of Shoreham Village, within close proximity to the train station and to Sevenoaks.
Indeed, it was the superb location of Little Copt which first attracted the current owners to the property. Shoreham is a lovely little village boasting a handful of pubs; an excellent village store and post office; and a boutique vineyard producing award winning wines and hosting regular wine tasting events, “they say. “There is a superb primary school just a short walk from the house, and a choice of excellent comprehensive, grammar and private schools within easy reach for older children, too. The location truly offers the best of both worlds: there is mile upon mile of beautiful open countryside right on the doorstep, and the station is quite literally a stone’s throw away for direct services into London for commuting to work. This is a location that would be hard to better.
